    2006 2.5 174 auto at 140k had both the injector seals and glow plugs done a few months ago and was wondering what is causing the van to smoke on start up.It only smokes for about 8/10 seconds then stops there is not a huge amount of smoke and only happens when engine is cold. Smoke also smells...

    Hi All. Tearing my hair out with a long standing issue on a 2.5ltr T5. Symptoms are progressively more and more sluggish, losing power sometimes rarely stalling, drives lumpy every now and again until what I think is a massive dpf regen, white smoke (sometimes other colours) plumes from the...
  4. LT & Crafter
    advice please I have a 2009 VW Crafter minibus which I’ve got an issue with. It smokes intermittently with blue smoke. I can drive it one day and it will be fine, but the next day it could smoke for a minute or so at a time then be fine again. I’ve had a new turbo, had the injectors looked...

    I have a T5 2.5 TDi 130 4motion 2005 that suddenly started to spit black smoke clouds some months ago. I took it to the garage (in two different places actually). They plugged in the computer but couldn't find any fault. Their conclusion is that it's just normal, it's an old lady, maybe i tanked...

    Thanks for any/all responses in advance. I've had my Caravelle 180PS BiTurbo TDI for just under a year now and on and off I'll be able to see smoke coming out from the bottom of the windscreen when at a standstill (at lights etc.) I think this only happens when the engine is up to...

    Hi there, I am hoping someone could give me a little guidance on where I ought to start with sorting this problem .. I have a 99 T4 2.5TDI with only 78k miles on the clock and a leisure drive camper conversion. The smoke started a couple of years ago and wasn't so bad but has recently ramped...

    Hi all, I've got a or possibly a few issues with my '04 2.5TDI 130 T5 and thought I'd share my thoughts as having read quite a bit on here from similar issues I feel my findings may help others, and of course I welcome anyone else's thoughts on the matter. The symptoms are as follows: -...

    Hi all, long time lurker first time poster. I recently bought an 07 T5 2.5 TDI Kombi with alot of miles on the clock. It's in great condition but apparently hasn't been too well looked after in the engine & servicing departments. Anyhow, after doing a full service myself, replacing the...

    So my van 96 Multivan 2.5TDI ACV has been in the garage (i live abroad) for 3/4 weeks and they still don't know what the problem could be. It suddenly started making a loud tractor noise under acceleration or just revving the engine, also loss of power especially when accelerating. The loss of...

    I've been investigating the smell of exhaust fumes in the cab in my 2008 130 T5 and discovered that on start up there is a puff of white smoke coming from the rear of the engine block around what I think is the turbo. I've found lots of threads about smoke on start up but not straight from the...

    Pulled into the car park yesterday (2009 Caravelle 2.5 130) to be greeted by billowing smoke and burning smell as i opened the door coming from underneath the centre of the van. I quickly got down to look underneath just as the smoking stopped so i couldn't see the exact point of origin, but it...
  13. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all, hoping someone can shed some light on this. I have a 2.5 tdi acv 96 multivan I noticed a loss of power at certain revs about 4 months ago, I thought it could be the EGR, so took it off gave it a clean, the inlet manifold was sludgy so have this a wipe around too, nothing major. This...

    Hello all, I'm new to T4 ownership. I've just took the plunge and bought a 1991 T4 2.4 AAB swb camper (lhd import from Germany) 163k miles on the clock. Anyway, the last owner had the timing belt done and it is quite smokey and has poor MPG (averaging 25-26mpg at 70mph cruising). Having done...

    My T4, 1991 2.4 diesel has never let me down. It still managed to get back over the Alps to England last week even when clouds of blue-grey smoke billowed out of the exhaust on start-up. Anyone any ideas what the problem could be? Symptoms - starts-up no problem, but struggles, obviously not on...

    Seem to be going through a hell of a lot oil at the moment (500ml per tank). Have had a compression test done which came back fine. The turbo has been given a clean bill of health and there is no oil leaking onto the belly pan. It smokes a little on start up for a few seconds but that's it. Any...

    Hi guys, I have a 2006 T5 Panel Van, had it for about 5 years now and never given me any problems. Its the 104PS but has been remapped about a year ago, gives it much better economy and torque! Anyways, recently (about 2 weeks ago) I noticed that when at half acceleration on the pedal, in...

    My van has just been into a diesel specialist as I was having problems with a lot of smoke on start up in the mornings for the first couple of miles. I was hoping for a little tweak here and there and all would be good... However I have now been told that cylinder 3 is running at 200psi and 1,2...

    Hi, This is a bit of a classic query I know but: When I start my 2.5l Tdi T28 there's a puff of smelly smoke, white with a very slightly dark tinge, it then runs a bit roughly for 5 to 10 seconds before clearing. Smells a bit like a steam engine. It then runs perfectly all day long. If the...

    So, into the 2nd week with me new (2006) T5. This is the first car ever bought from a dealer and im regretting it already. Driving kids home from school started running rough and smoking (worse than it already was). Felt lucky to make it home. Check engine light is now staying on. So I Ran...
